The school consistently ranks among the top middle schools in the state, with strong academic performance and a low student-teacher ratio.

While Exeter-West Greenwich Reg. Junior's academic achievements are impressive, the school's student population is predominantly white, with relatively low percentages of minority students.

Additionally, the school serves a more affluent student population, with only 15.97% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, which is lower than the state average. This socioeconomic advantage may contribute to the school's strong academic performance, but it also raises questions about equity and access to high-quality education for all students in the region.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
